If you have browsed a lot of websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can often be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with each shared hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every web site hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of custom made pages will have identical style and design as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Adding your personal pages for any of the 4 error types to any site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very basic and shall not take more than a few mouse clicks. When you upload the files to your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should appear for every single error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. Should you select the aforementioned option, you need to type the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will be displayed when a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you choose this option, the file should be located inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
